Ken Silman of the Daily Review, a Hayward, Calif. newspaper, is reporting that John Lockett is planning on signing with Bill Callahan and Nebraska later this week.
Last Wednesday, Coach Calcagno got a phone call from Nebraska coach Dennis Wagner, stating that Nebraska was interested in offering Lockett. Coach Calcagno left a message for Lockett and on Thursday they sent the final paperwork to Nebraska.
Now there is a waiting game for Nebraska and Lockett to see if everything is a 'go'.
The road has been anything but straight for Lockett. Out of Hayward High School he left for San Jose State to walk-on. Lockett left San Jose State to attend Chabot.
In two seasons at Chabot, Lockett caught 72 passes for 1,106 yards and 12 touchdowns. Lockett is 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds and still runs a 4.5 second timed 40-yard dash.
